    Mimic these colorful outfits when you're sick and tired of that plain old tailored suit and chiffon blouse combo you've been rocking since your first day on the job.

    Floral shift

    The shift dress is a workday staple, but a printed shift is a lot less common. Don't shy away from bold floral patterns, but instead anchor them with assertive accessories, like an edgy black pump and solid gold cuff. Bonus points for adultifying a cutesy Peter Pan collar.

    Plaid pants

    Some squares might say you can't pair a patterned pant with a fun top, but they are so wrong. A solid color works just as nicely, as long as the shade ties in with a color on the pants. Choose a soft silhouette to balance out tailored trousers, toss on a blazer and pair it all with a neutral bag to carry all your essentials.

    Double Layer Peter Pan Collar Blouse (Bershka Israel, $35), Campbell Tailored Blazer (Whistles, $545), Vivienne Westwood Green & Black Tartan Tailored Trousers (ProfileFashion.com, $640), Sellas Small Shopping Bag (Tod's, $1059)




    So your silhouette might need to be demure at the office, but that doesn't mean your color palette needs to sit down and shut up. On a hot day, pair a sleeveless coral shirtdress with a blue statement necklace and bring along a creamy jacket to shield from corporate air conditioning. Ground the look with a pair of black kitten heels.

    Plain Sleeveless Shirtdress (Oasis, $76), Tencel Cotton-blend Jacket (Mango.com, $76), Kendra Scott Harlow Necklace (Cusp.com, $195), Kitten 50 Pump in Black Leather (Saint Laurent, $595)

    Neon Skirt

    Update a boring old pencil skirt with a high-powered dose of neon brocade. Keep things simple on top with a silky, work-appropriate sleeveless blouse and gray blazer, while finishing off the look with a necklace and a pair of pumps in a complementary color. Instant style.

    Turnover Blazer (Zalando, $205), Richard Nicoll Neon Color-Blocked Brocade Skirt (TheOutnet, $250), Nicholas Kirkwood Red Pointed Suede Pumps (Harvey Nichols, $665), Melanie Auld 3 Tier Pave Triangle Necklace (RevolveClothing.com, $163), Wilfred Free Moffett Tank (Aritzia, $24)




    Afraid of saturated colors? Don't sweat it — just choose pastels. Muted colors are a wonderful way to spice up your wardrobe (especially in the spring and summer) without flying too far outside of your comfort zone. Pair tailored, patterned shorts with an accordion-pleat blouse and a white blazer. Black cutout oxfords anchor the entire look, while tiny gold rings add charm.

    Linen Straight Blazer (Mango, $110), Accordion Pleating Tank (LookbookStore.com, $20), Printed Bermuda Shorts, (White House Black Market, $68), Lace Up Cutout Oxfords (MakeMeChic.com, $27), Thin Gold Stacking Rings (Etsy.com, $19).

    Studded flats

    A black pencil skirt is an office staple for a reason. It's chic and flattering and goes with everything. Add a whole lot of (subtle) edge to your work outfit with studded yellow flats, a red blazer and a chain link statement necklace.

  • 07/01/14--13:34: Mojito-inspired foot scrub
  • I love the smell and taste of fresh mint. It's very cleansing to me, which is perfect for a foot scrub.

    This scrub is an easy, do-it-yourself, aromatic creation inspired by a mojito. This scrub has fresh lime juice, natural cane sugar, peppermint oil and fresh mint leaves.

    Mojito-Inspired face scrub ingredients

    Fresh lime juice is a natural astringent, which basically means it helps your tissues heal and bind.

    The citric acid in limes also helps to remove the dead skin, giving you fresh feet for summer sandals. When combined with the sugar, it's a great exfoliant.

    Mojito-Inspired face scrub prep

    The fresh mint serves several purposes. Mint is known to be cleansing and purifying, plus the scent really helps you relax and enjoy the whole spa-like experience.

    Mojito-Inspired face scrub

    Mojito-inspired DIY foot scrub

    Yields 1


    • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    • 2-1/2 tablespoons natural cane sugar
    • 3 mint leaves
    • 2 drops peppermint oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon Hawaiian pink sea salt (optional)


    1. Squeeze the fresh lime juice into a small bowl. Stir in the sugar, peppermint oil and salt, if desired.
    2. Finely dice the mint leaves and stir into the bowl.
    3. Apply the scrub and rinse with warm water.

  • 07/01/14--14:56: DIY Margarita face scrub
  • Margarita DIY facial scrub

    Summer is here, which means margarita season is in full-fledged glory. While sipping on a margarita of choice, you can also have an easy DIY margarita-inspired face scrub.

    This scrub will leave your face feeling refreshed, smooth and clean all day long.

    Margarita DIY facial scrub Ingredients

    This scrub requires four simple ingredients, and it comes together in a snap. Once you're done, we recommend you moisturize and apply cucumbers to your eyes for a truly refreshing experience.

    Contrary to popular belief, the olive oil in this scrub will not make your face oily. Olive oil is very good for dry or sensitive skin. It also helps smooth your skin and add needed nourishment.

    Margarita DIY facial scrub Mix

    The fresh lime juice is a great binding agent for your skin. The citrus works to reduce the dirt and bad oils in your pores.

    The natural cane sugar and coarse sea salt help to deeply exfoliate and remove the dirt that gets lodged into your pores.

    Margarita DIY facial scrub mix 2

    Your face will look brighter and feel better after this refreshing margarita-inspired face scrub.

    3. Rinse the scrub with warm water.

    Yousafzai is only 16 years old, but you'd never know it by her beautiful resilience and diplomacy. In 2012, Taliban militants shot her in the head at point-blank range in order to punish her for her outspoken stance on education for girls. Thankfully, Yousafzai survived and continues her activism to this day, although part of her skull was removed and she temporarily lost her hearing. She defies conventional beauty standards by wearing the traditional garments of her Sunni Muslim faith.

    2. Lizzie Velasquez

    Once dubbed the "world's ugliest woman" by detractors, Velasquez has faced her bullies head on by speaking out about inner beauty and bullying. Velasquez suffers from a rare disorder that prevents her from gaining weight, and her appearance is jolting at first glance. But in a moving 2013 TED talk, Lizzie implored women to define themselves rather than letting others define them, just like she did to reach her goals.

    3. Stacey McKenzie

    McKenzie describes her appearance as quirky and peculiar, but that didn't stop her from landing a career as a supermodel. When she first tried to model, McKenzie spent her energy trying to tame her locks of hair and cover her freckles, but she didn't gain success until she learned to embrace her interesting appearance as the cornerstone of her appeal.

    4. Carmen Carrera

    The beautiful Carrera is a quintessential glamour girl: curvy, voluptuous and exotic. She was, however, born a male. That hasn't stopped Carrera from pursuing a gender transition and embracing a career as a lingerie and fashion model. She might even make it into next year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

    5. Tilda Swinton

    It's hard to put a finger on what is so unique about Swinton — she is a striking mixture of stark, aloof and yet utterly interesting beauty. Swinton's unique look has served her well in a variety of challenging roles that have carried her acting career into her 50s, which is a lot more than many classically gorgeous actresses can say.

    6. Lupita Nyong'o

    Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o is open about her youthful hatred of her dark black skin. She changed her opinion about her skin as a teenager when she saw the success of black supermodel Alek Wek, and was invited by her mother to embrace the beauty of compassion and say goodbye to "the seduction of inadequacy." She is an outspoken proponent of self-acceptance and a model for young black women who wish for lighter, "whiter" features.

    7. Padma Lakshmi

    Model and actress Lakshmi is stunning, but she struggled for years with acceptance of a long, jagged scar on her arm from a car wreck as a teenager. She initially tried to hide the scar, but learned that the mark was distinctive and set her apart from her modeling peers. It wasn't long before her scar became her brand, and Lakshmi embraced photography of what she once perceived as imperfection.

    8. Sharny Kieser

    Personal trainer Kieser has an absolutely rocking post-baby body, but her abs and thighs are criss-crossed by long stretch marks from her pregnancy. But guess what: Kieser doesn't care. She doesn't hide the fact that her body changed during pregnancy, nor does she feel that babies are an excuse to not pursue fitness. She wears her bikini with pride, and never asks for her photos to be retouched.

    9. Taryn Brumfitt

    Embrace the documentary by Taryn Brumfitt

    In 2012, Brumfitt contemplated a breast lift and tummy tuck that would "fix" her mommy body. Instead, though, she asked herself, "If I go through with this, what am I saying to my daughter about body image? How will I teach her to love her body?" She cancelled her surgery and founded the Body Image Movement, which promotes the concept that women can love the skin they're in, even if it's been changed by pregnancy, childbirth and age.

    In China, light skin is the beauty ideal and the lighter the better. They even have a saying that translates roughly to "white skin covers up a hundred uglinesses." Women all over China go to great lengths in the summer to keep from getting the slightest tan which can mean everything from carrying a parasol at all times (which honestly sounds adorably fun) to wearing sun protective clothing from wrist to ankle at all times (which honestly sounds miserable).

    Now Qingdaonese women have upped the ante by adding full face masks — think bank robber but with a neon pink flair — called a "face-kini" and apparently it's all the rage on Chinese beaches. And I thought I stood out at the pool in my long-sleeved UPF100 rashguard.

    But the masks aren't just to keep from tanning. According to Peng Yangjun, the photographer who snapped these beautiful pics, Chinese women wear them for a variety of reasons. He points out the masks protect against jellyfish and pollution in the water. In addition, he says that elderly Chinese women are shy to show their bodies and the masks give them anonymity.

    And then there is the creation of the masks themselves. "Elderly women make the masks by hand. They use materials like used underwears, used clothes and used swimsuits, to piece and sew them together, so you hardly find two same masks, every piece is a unique one, with different textures, and colors, like a contemporary art piece," Yangjun says, adding that the women take great pride in creating styles that reflect their taste and personality.

    Perhaps I should look into a mask? Thanks to a genetic predisposition to skin cancer (both my parents have had it) and a shade of skin I lovingly describe as "fish belly," I can definitely relate to the desire to keep all exposed skin away from sunlight. Although I do it more out of health concerns than vanity.


    I once tried to imitate my sun-kissed sisters by getting a spray tan in college. The result was hilariously disastrous, closer to a kid caught playing with her mom's bronzer than anything approximating real life. After that I gave up on fake tanners and became an avid sunscreen devotee. While I don't judge the women at all for wanting to protect their skin, it does seem like it might be uncomfortable to wear something closer to a space suit than a swimsuit at the beach. But perhaps they're more comfy than they look?

    In many places in the world (like in China), lighter skin is considered more beautiful. India, the Philippines and many African countries see women going to great lengths using dangerous skin bleaches, painful laser treatments and a variety of potions to lighten their natural complexions. The popular African singer Denicia recently made international headlines for lightening her skin so much that she is now almost unrecognizable. After doing so, she then hawked a bleaching cream called "Whitenicious" to women. When asked about her transformation and whether she was implying that white skin was better than black skin she said simply, "White means pure."


    I'm pretty sure that translates to "white means pasty" where I live. None of my friends are interested in lightening their skin and a golden glow is still the coveted look. But either way it seems like a tragedy that what all of us most want is what we don't have. While I'm all for women doing what they want with their bodies, I would hope that no one, no matter how light- or dark-hued their natural complexion is, ever feels badly about the skin they're born in. Bodies were never made to all look the same so let's embrace the beautiful variety in those differences. Whether your skin is pale, tan, caramel, dark chocolate or even freckled, splotchy, wrinkly or bumpy, it's your skin.

    And now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to look for parasols online.

Fashion trucks are slowly evolving into a popular and unique shopping experience for women across the country, making it uber-convenient to treat yourself or find the perfect gift for your BFF's birthday — and all during your lunch break.

    "People stop me, on the street, to comment on my hair"

    Heidi Lamar gray hair

    Heidi Lamar

    "I am in my 40s now but started going gray at 16. I didn't have the courage to go gray then so I colored until I was 40. Quitting color cold turkey was not easy. It took a long time and involved a lot of hats and a pretty short haircut," says Heidi Lamar, an Arizona spa owner who started the Go-Gray Program to help women ease into their gray hair.

    "People stop me, on the street, to comment on my hair. My favorite is 'You are so brave. I would love to do what you are doing but I am just too scared.' That always makes me laugh. I'm not a freedom fighter, I just stopped coloring my hair!"

    "We are all uniquely made"

    Ty Alexander Gray Hair

    "The best part about being gray and looking young for me is that I inspire so many women my age and older to embrace their natural hair color," says Ty Alexander. The 37-year-old started going gray at 14 and has turned her look into a successful brand. "Through my blog, Gorgeous In Grey, I try to empower women through beauty but also to see that and that ultimately gives us power."

    "People are always complimenting it"

    "It's distinctive!" says Cornelia Krane, 32. She started graying at 21 and hasn't looked back. "I have a pronounced gray streak and people are always complimenting it."

    "My trademark"

    "I started graying at 21," says writer Monica Cost, 43. "Why I kept it: Over time I became sick of dyeing it, especially when I started to wear it short. It was authentic to me, so I left it. It has since become my trademark and I love it!"

    "I used to try and hide it... now I just embrace it"

    Sarah Scott gray hair

    "I am 27 years old and started to get gray hairs as a teenager!" says Boston resident Sarah Scott. "My hair didn't really look gray until I was, maybe, 24 or so. I am now completely gray on the top, especially when I part my hair in the middle. I used to try and hide it by parting it differently, but now I just embrace it. Once I did, I started getting so many compliments on it. I've even had women ask me where I got my hair colored, so they could mimic my look! How flattering. The gray makes me feel unique, proud and even a little bit edgy."

The look is shaping up to be one of summer 2014's most noteworthy style trends, as Chrissy proved here at the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards, and it's a style we can all rock in one way or another to brighten up our summer look.

    The expert says: Not sure which tone of yellow suits your complexion? Fret not, we consulted Salvador Perez, costume designer for The Mindy Project and spokesperson for Casio Baby G watches, to get the color cues. "The color yellow is summer in a bottle, it's fresh and bright and makes you feel better wearing it," Salvador says.

    • Fair: "If you are fair, you want to go with a pastel yellow to brighten you up," Salvador says.
    • Medium to olive skin: "As a general rule, citrus yellows work well on medium to olive tones and darker olive skin goes well with bolder yellow colors," Salvador suggests.
    • Dark: "The darker your skin tone, the brighter and bolder yellows and marigolds work better," Salvador advises.

    Lesson #2: The undone updo simply rocks

    5 Summer styles lessons inspired by Chrissy Teigen

    This loose, romantic 'do has been gaining major traction the past few seasons, and Chrissy knows how to wear it just right: wispy and wavy. Perfect for date night, special events or a day of running tedious errands, the undone updo is the ideal look for gals who just want to get their hot as heck long hair off their shoulders in the hot months but still look cute.

    The expert says: Riccardo Maggiore, salon owner and stylist at New York City's acclaimed Riccardo Maggiore Salon, says prep work is key to nailing this 'do. "You must create a foundation for this style. A product like Oribe’s wax will give the proper texture and keep the hair in place. Pin your hair under using as many bobby pins as needed while keeping out a few pieces in the front. If you have shorter bangs and want a more styled look you can quickly use a curling iron on the front pieces. On humid days, use a light hairspray to keep extra frizz away." Marcus Garcia, stylist at the salon's new downtown Fifth Avenue location, says the look is popular with good reason: "The un-done updo is everywhere lately and not just on celebrities. Everyone is so busy today and this low-maintenance look is ideal for the woman on the go. It has that tousled, messy look so you don’t have to worry about every single hair being in place."

    Lesson #3: Summer lace doesn't have to feel hot

    5 Summer styles lessons inspired by Chrissy Teigen

    Lace is always en vogue, but this summer it's especially so. If the thought of wearing itchy, sweaty lace in the hot months just gave you a few premature hot flashes, though, you're not alone. Most gals reserve lace for the cooler months, but Chrissy isn't most gals. Here, she wisely paired a lacy sheath with a complementary blazer draped over the shoulders for the CFDA Fashion Awards.

    The expert says: Meredith Markworth Pollack, costume designer for Reign, says you most definitely can rock lace and still feel comfortable when the mercury rises: "Lace can be a perfect summer look even while keeping your cool. Try a sheer lace top or dress with a lightweight slip or bra underneath. That way your look is still breathable and comfortable without sacrificing the detail of the lace. It's also a great day-to-night piece, which in the summer is essential."

    Lesson #4: Demure can definitely be sexy

    Sophisticated styles and hemlines are officially making a comeback. And while the obligatory summer minis will always be a fashion staple, this season the industry's hottest trendsetters like Chrissy are stepping out in midi-length dresses, full and flirty skirts and frocks that show a little less skin. Leaving a little something to the imagination? We can get behind that idea.

    The expert says: Rebecca Hofherr, costume designer for Elementary, says the demure look is a trend that will always be in style. "Making new styles out of your old is a great way to revamp your wardrobe. The midi-skirt and sophisticated look is back for 2014. This year pair your sophisticated blouses and your midi skirts with a colorful Oxford shoe and a large Moroccan-inspired necklace and you'll be right on trend," she says.

    Lesson #5: The faux bang is a fun way to experiment

    5 Summer styles lessons inspired by Chrissy Teigen

    We've said it before and we'll say it again: Bangs take some serious commitment. With all the blow drying, flat ironing and frequent trims that come along with the look, it can sometimes feel like they're not even worth your time. At this year's Billboard Awards, Chrissy toyed around with the look in a totally non-committal way we adored: a wig featuring blunt bangs.

    The expert says: "It is a good idea to test bangs because heavy bangs are a statement and once you cut them you have them for a while. Test out bangs first to make sure you like them," says Riccardo Maggiore. He says there are a few ways to test drive the look: "First, you can pin your hair under in the shape of bangs at the desired length. Option two is to try clip on bangs like Chrissy is in this photo. To wear these, you take a triangular section of hair from your face and clip on the pair of fake bangs. To make the bangs look natural just cover the edges with some of your natural hair to blend the bangs into the rest of the hairstyle."

    Who says your 9-to-5 style has to be boring? Inject some life into your summer work wardrobe with a pair of nautical-inspired rope print shorts that are perfect for the season. Not only are these a great choice for a casual Friday, but they're professional and polished too, so really, you can sport them any day of the week. Throw a blazer on over a plain white tee and step into some pretty platform pumps to put your best foot forward.

    When picking out an appropriate pair of shorts for the office, you’ll definitely want to pay close attention to length. In fact, you can even use the same dress code rule you followed back in school. Put your arms by your side and see where your fingertips fall. If your shorts are longer than your fingertips, great; you're good to go. If not though, leave 'em at home. And remember, no denim please, unless you work in a super-casual office environment.

    You can never go wrong with a pair of pleated shorts that look like a skort. And because it's summer, why not go bold? These babies are made of a soft silk crepe de chine and have that high fashion it-girl vibe that's sure to capture the attention of your co-workers and boss. Style yours with a silky button-down blouse and d'orsay sandals for a sophisticated look that's oh so comfy yet says you mean business.

    Short suits have been all over the runway and the red carpet for the past several years, so if you're thinking of trying out the tailored trend for summer, we say go for it. Instead of doing the whole sexy blazer sans a shirt underneath it, however, cover up with a conservative sleeveless blouse and opt for a pair of lightweight cotton shorts in a muted color. You’ll easily beat the heat, plus you'll be prepared for any frigid temps inside too. Ugh, gotta love that air conditioning…

    The hot mom and reality star swept her blond locks up into this pretty 'do to hit the red carpet, but we think it's the perfect look for work, play and beyond. And guess what, it's actually easier to replicate than you might think. We got Cortney Peck, stylist at Boston's renowned Jeffrey Lyle Salon, to offer her tips for stealing Kendra's style. You're welcome.

    Get the look

    1. Start by sectioning out your hair into workable half up, half down sections. Then separate your entire head into 3 sections — 1 on either side and a mohawk section.
    2. Taking the top mohawk section, split it into 3 sections to start 3 small French braids.
    3. On your side section, make an inside out French braid (or for an easier version, just regular French braids). Braid all the way to the ends within each braid and secure with an elastic.
    4. Split the bottom half of hair into 2 braids. Start with top braids and braid, adding in side braids and bottom braids to complete Kendra's braided French braid.
    5. Add hairspray (Editor's note: We love Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray) and pin up any loose hairs.

    Keira Knightley

    Shall we take a moment to collectively sigh at how darling Keira Knightley looks here? OK, back to reality folks. Amid our daily style stalking, we spotted the actress practically floating through the streets of New York City in this flirty pale blue fit and flare dress.

    Keira Knightley

    Photo credit: Alberto Reyes/WENN.com, FayesVision/WENN.com

    There are several elements to this dress that really take it from cute to epic. First, the pleats. They're girly but not overkill, and they even extend to the short sleeves. Second, the crisp, demure collar. It adds a touch of flirty sophistication, don't you think? Finally, this dress is perfect parts sheer and covered up, and aren't we all searching for the perfect sheer but not too sheer dress? Keira accessorized her look with a beaded blue clutch, metallic silver pumps and an airy crown braid.

    The final verdict? Has there ever been a more perfect blue dress? We think not, and we're simply dying to get our hands on this one.

    Kerry Washington

    Work it, girl. Kerry Washington showed off her post-baby body at this week's BET Awards in a strapless floral fit and flare dress. The new mom (who's been rocking an amazing glow lately) looked lovely as she posed for photos on the red carpet.

    Kerry Washington

    Photo credit: FayesVision/WENN.com

    Kerry's character on Scandal is known for her sophisticated business attire, but in real life the actress doesn't shy away from a fashion risk, bold prints especially. With any strapless dress, proportions are important — you don't want to reveal too much, after all — and Kerry's knee-length dress shows off just enough skin. An unexpected pair of white pointy pumps looked pretty amazing against the rainbow of colors, and a boxy emerald green clutch blended into the print beautifully.

    The final verdict? With all eyes on her printed frock, Kerry kept her beauty look fairly simple, opting for loose curls and a natural glow. Looking stunning, lady.

    Pear shape

    You may have some junk in the trunk, but lucky for you, like the booytlicious Kim Kardashian your tiny waist looks killer in a crop top. Take a style cue from the star and draw attention to your upper half by pairing a curve-hugging high-waisted skirt with a fitted crop top that shows off only a smidgen of skin. Your proportions will be perfectly balanced.

    Apple shape

    You tend to carry your weight in your stomach, sure, but don't let that stop you from hopping on the crop top trend train stat. The key to balancing your body out and camouflaging a tummy is picking a crop top in a darker hue with embellishments or cutouts around the neckline or shoulders. Make sure your bottoms meet your top so a tiny sliver of skin (or none at all) is peeking out.

    Rectangle shape

    A recent study found that a whopping majority (over half) of women have a rectangular shaped body, which is characterized by a relatively undefined waist. To add some definition and curves, plus play up those slender arms and legs, opt for a cropped tank in a longer and looser fit styled with a pair of skin-tight skinny jeans.

    Broad shoulders

    Believe it or not, broad shoulders and crop tops do mix. You'll simply want to find one that directs the eye up and down as opposed to straight across. For example, a crop top with soft shoulders (like a halter) or a scoop or V-neck cropped tee is a fab choice. Pair yours with a fuller skirt on bottom and you're ready to hit the town.

    If you're athletic or have a long torso, you can pretty much sport any type of crop top in the book. For toned bodies, however, a feminine shirt is a must. Think crop tops with girly details, such as ruffles and lace. Self conscious about your arm muscles? Then choose a shirt with short sleeves. Alternatively, if you want to show off all that hard work at the gym, go sleeveless. An A-line skirt will accentuate your waist beautifully.

    Big bust

    If you're a busty gal, why not look to Kim K. (again) for some crop-top inspiration? The reality star often rocks crop tops with high necklines in a super-stretchy material that actually makes her chest appear smaller. Steer clear of prints and stick to solid colors, and you'll be just fine.

    A bustier crop top will lift your ladies right up and give you that sexy hint of cleavage you're looking for. You can also boost your perceived breast size with a pretty pattern that highlights your chest area, ruffles or even pockets (basically anything that adds volume up top and creates the illusion of bigger boobs). Remember to keep your bottom half simple so as not to overwhelm.

Whether you love or hate the trend, you have to admit that these ladies are rocking the look with the best accessory of all: confidence.

    Alessandra Ambrosio wearing overalls

    If a supermodel like Alessandra Ambrosio thinks short overalls are cool, us mere mortals can definitely get behind the idea.

    Julie Bowen wearing overalls

    Julie Bowen took her overalls for a spin at her local farmers market and looked simply adorable. We know what you're thinking: This look could very easily have gone very "farmer." Luckily, Julie's cool canvas slip-ons, petite straw hat and hipster glasses lend the look a cool vibe.

    Fearne Cotton wearing overalls

    British fashionista Fearne Cotton showed us a cute way to style your overalls on a chilly day: Just add tights, black booties and a form-fitting coat.

    Julianne Hough wearing overalls

    The temps are rising right now, but when things cool down in a few months you'll want a way to wear your overalls and stay warm. Julianne Hough wore hers with a long-sleeve crop top, an oversized scarf and animal print flats while out and about in Los Angeles.

    Our good friends at SalonCapri helped whip up this easy recreation of the hairstyle and in the name of wedding season, we were stoked to share the step-by-step breakdown.

    Senior stylist Graziella Lembo (who, by the way, also helped us recreate Blake Lively's most-memorable braid at Cannes) says start by curling one-inch sections of the hair with a 1-1/2 inch curling iron.

    And then the magic starts here:

    1. Spray curls with Kérastase Laque Noire hairspray for strong hold.
    2. Gather two 2-inch sections of hair at the crown, one in the front and one in the very center of the head.
    3. Tease the center section lightly with a comb until you achieve your desired fullness. Smooth the front section gently over the teased area.
    4. Twist the ends of the two sections together and secure with bobby pins in back of head.
    5. Gently brush through curls to loosen them up. Finish the look by spraying a light coat of L’Oréal Professional Perfect Shimmer Shine Illuminating Mist lightly for shine and a light, non-sticky hold.

    D'Orsay flats

    D'Orsay Flats

    We love a good ballet flat, but chances are you've been wearing them for years. Make your new go-to flat a d'Orsay style. A pointed toe gives this style a super modern look that will still go with everything. This one from Report Signature is versatile but adds interest with a two-tone color palette and suede and patent leather texture. Tres chic. (DSW.com, $40)

    Cutout Oxfords

    Cutout Oxfords

    You probably know how amazing oxfords are by now and maybe you even own a few pairs. Want to expand your collection? Step up your game with a cutout pair like these Modernist Oxfords from Forever 21 in black and white. They’re just as wearable as a regular oxford and yet the cutouts add some unexpected edge. Imagine how great patterned socks would look peering out from underneath. What a great way to give a spunky masculine edge to girly dresses. (Forever 21, $26)

    Mid-heel sandals

    Mid Heel Sandals

    Comfort is way in right now (and thank goodness for that) but sometimes you don't want to sacrifice height. You're in luck because sturdy, medium-height heels are also hot, especially in the sandal department. For maximum awesome, choose a diamante-encrusted pair like these from Zara. The strong heel contrasts nicely with the metallic straps and the large jewels are just glitzy enough. Summer workday footwear has never been better. (Zara, $50)

    Patterned-sole wedge

    Patterned Sole Wedge

    Patterned shoes are a perfect way to up the fashion quotient of your wardrobe. Why not throw a curveball with this shoe that allows the sole of the shoe to take center stage? The shoe's upper part is done in simple go-with-anything navy suede, while the scalloped pattern on the platform adds some retro flair to your outfit. (ModCloth, $60)

    Colorblocked pump

    Colorblocked Pump

    Colorblocking is a stylish technique for adding a geometric dose of color to your outfit. Colorblocked pumps, like these from Seychelles, are a step up from your basic pair of heels and are totally on-trend. The dark gray shoe gets a serious upgrade with the addition of a tomato-red heel. (DSW.com, $60)

    Lace-up boots

    Lace-up Boots

    Ankle booties have been getting all the attention for quite awhile. Maybe it's time we paid attention to their sexy precursor, the lace-up boot, once again? The Prospectress boot laces up the leg to about knee height and has a substantial (but not flimsy) heel. It's reminiscent of the Victorian era, but that doesn't mean it should be left there.

    Why we're obsessed

    Nothing bores us faster than an all-black, dumpy gym outfit. And we know, black is typically a super-flattering choice, so we don't blame women for reverting back to old habits. That's why we're so happy to see Ashley rocking a mix of black and lighter colors.

    How to style the look

    When it comes to looking cute while working out, it all comes down to two things: color and fit. Make sure you look for flattering silhouettes and materials that will keep you cool and cute at the gym, and you'll be off to a good start. And remember: A few fun accessories like killer sneakers and a colorful water bottle never hurt either.
